What's an "avatar"?

A picture that displays under your user title.

There are pre-set avatars in vBulletin, or you can upload your own (sometimes there are preset requirements by the sysadmin for using avatars ... minimum number of posts or whatnot.)

If you want to see some in use, go to glocktalk.com or politicsforum.com

Sometimes I just don't understand people. I mean, I'm trying to freaking <b>read</b> here! I personally find avatars to be incredibly distracting.

It's a vanity thing. People try to outdo each other with increasingly clever animated avatars, or want their picture up, or whatnot.

It's kind of like buddy icons in AIM. Either you use 'em, or you don't.

I hate avatars and image signatures.

I try to turn both off on boards. If I cannot then I rarely visit these boards. (Some of you proably will see that as a reason to have the images 8-P )

Three reasons:

1) They are distracting.

2) They take up screen space.

3) Often offensive and inappropriate at work. They stick out and scream "Look at me! I'm slacking off at work!!"

The thing I like the most about the cellar is the clean look. It looks very professional, not at all childish like many other sites.

Plus I feel that the lack of signatures and avatars helps keep stupid people who are attracted to such things away from the site.

I was on a forum where half the fun was seeing who could come up with the best and most creative avatar. There were a few PhotoShop experts there and would come up with some whacked out stuff.

We don't do avatars here...too much clutter. We do have a Photoshop forum though.

I'm over the avatar thing. Those people on the other forum were shallow, vapid cunts.
